I purchased this 260z for $4500 from a seller who operated a "body shop" as you can imagine it was a train wreck. The first year of ownership involved retracing the PO's path of destruction and making it drive-able. Cooling, suspension, ignition and fueling mods were done impulsively and without any real direction other than to make the car fun to drive. The ride quality was a bit stiff and the straight-pipe exhaust was a bit loud, but the car was quick and incredible to drive. Its been almost 6 years of ownership and this vehicle is going under the knife for its second phase. I am reverting it back tot its factory "Emerald Green" color, and am installing a homebrew 3L L28 engine with ITB fuel injection and Haltech management.

Thank you!

[]Randy Gross

Beautiful car! I have always wanted a Z in blue!

[]Noah Rodebaugh

I've never seen a Z car in blue but I can imagine how handsome it would look.

[]Sac Car Scene

Great looking 260. Love this car, I wish Nissan would bring this back as a limited run of cars. The Z series would be so cool to see back in production.

[]Noah Rodebaugh

I agree wholeheartedly. They were the purest form of sports car at the time.
